Summary
Richie Lanz, dumped and stranded in war-torn Kabul by his last remaining client, discovers Salima Khan, a Pashtun teenager with a beautiful voice and the courageous dream of becoming the first woman to compete on national television in Afghanistan's version of American Idol. Richie partners with a savvy hooker, a pair of hard-partying war profiteers, and a hair-trigger mercenary and, braving dangerous cultural prejudices, manages his new proťǧe into becoming his "Afghan Star."
